When is it Time to Replace Office Chairs?
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
In many work environments, office chairs are in use for 40+ hours a week. With that much use, we cannot expect them to last a lifetime, but when is it time for an upgrade?
The average lifespan of an office chair is 7-8 years, but this will be dependent on the make and the frequency of use. If you opted for cheap office chairs, they could start to feel uncomfortable within a year or two.
Five Ways to Tell if it is Time to Replace your Office Chairs
The telling signs are:
- Your employees are fidgeting and regularly repositioning themselves because the office chairs are no longer comfortable
- You notice members of your team regularly rubbing their lower back and complaining of backache
- Damaged or missing parts mean that adjustable features are no longer operational
- There are visible signs of wear and tear which makes the office chairs look tatty
- The office furniture no longer fits with new working practices or the company image
It is also common for businesses to upgrade the office furniture as part of a rebranding process or relocation.
Have you Considered Pre-owned Office Furniture for Cost-Effective Upgrades?
Not all second-hand office chairs are in a state of disrepair when they are replaced. There are many reasons why great quality office chairs are surplus to requirements.
Recycled Business Furniture collects second-hand office chairs that are in nearly new condition. We seek out leading brands, ergonomic design and styles to suit modern work environments. All pre-owned office furniture is thoroughly checked and cleaned before being displayed in our used office furniture showroom.
We regularly buy in bulk, which means that our customers can fully fit out their workplaces with matching and coordinating pre-owned office furniture.
The main benefit of buying second-hand office chairs is that your budget can stretch to leading brands including Herman Miller and Vitra. These quality models are ergonomically modelled to maximise comfort and provide lumbar support. They will help your team to avoid aches and pains so that they can work more productively.
Our selection of stylish used office chairs will help to create modern work environments, which makes the right impression for your employees, clients and visitors.
Try out Used Office Chairs Before You Buy
We do take orders online and via the Recycled Business Furniture Facebook page, but the best option is to visit our Buckinghamshire pre-owned office furniture showroom. This allows you the opportunity to try out a selection of used office chairs and find the one that is most comfortable.
In addition, you can take a close look at the quality of our stock. We check that every item is in fantastic condition, with full functionality and we are happy for you to do the same. See with your own eyes that there is no compromise in quality.
Whilst you are with us, you might also spot other items that would help fit out the office interior including second-hand desks, dividers, storage and shelving. Find our office furniture showroom in High Wycombe, near Adams Park Football Ground. We have parking outside the door.
